Event Report: MetrO Series 13 City Beach North

Saturday 22nd February, 2020  CityBeachNorthMetro awards

The last event of the 2019-20 MetrO series was organised by Nick and first-time setter Zali Dale. The controls were spread over the suburban streets and numerous small parks between The Boulevard and Hale Road with ocean views from some of the western-most controls. There were lots of hills so the shortest route between controls was not necessarily the fastest. Overall, it was a great way to end the latest MetrO series.

Afterwards Rachel West, the Series Coordinator. announced the top places for the best seven events out of thirteen. Ceri Pass won the Long Open Women and Craig Dufty won the Long Open Men. Several other orienteers were recognised as place getters in the various categories (age, course distance).

Thanks go to setters Nick (also overall 1st veteran man, medium course) and Zali (also overall 1st junior woman, medium course), and to the many other people who helped with event set up, event pack up, and control collection. Thank you also to Series Coordinator Rachel West, and to Rosalie McCauley and Melinda Richards for setting up the computer programme to handle entries, results and reports for each event.

Overall Series results are here.

The start is from Kapinara Primary School and the map covers the area of City Beach between the Boulevard and Hale Road. The area has an interesting street network along with many interconnecting parks. There are a few hills which you may want to consider in your route planning.

MetrO Series Event 12 Kent St Weir


Saturday 15th February, 2020

The Kent St Weir map comprises of a large, flat parkland area of Canning River Regional Park as well as the surrounding suburbia of Ferndale. It is a great area that hasn't been used for a while. The map has had significant updates done in preparation for this event from the hardworking duo of Hadrien and Ellie, so please come and enjoy the event they have prepared for you. It is suitable to prams, and dogs are welcome on a lead.

With only two more events left in the series this is one of your last chances to enjoy a MetrO outing. The assembly area is a lovely picnic area next to the river with a kids playground so why not bring some drinks and nibbles to enjoy post run.
